2021 QEPrize Trophy
This year's QEPrize trophy was designed by Hannah Goldsmith, 20, from the UK. Hannah's design design combines elegance and complexity, and it draws inspiration from the circuit boards on which much engineering is done.
Hannah is currently in her second year of a degree course in Design for Publishing and was delighted to have her design chosen by the judges as the winning entry. “When I found out my design was selected to be awarded to the winner of the QEPrize, I was just astounded, I couldn’t believe it.
“I am proud of my design, and I am proud of what it will embody, and I hope that the winners will cherish it, appreciate the honour and with it understand that all their hard work has amounted in an incredible achievement.”
As an indication of the incredibly high standard of this year’s entries, for the first time the judges made a Highly Commended award, recognising the work of 18 year old Indian student Atharva Gai. Atharva’s design impressed the judges with its careful and considered eye for detail and traditional manufacturing techniques.
This year, thousands of designers aged 14-24 entered the Create the Trophy competition from six continents across the world, creating incredible designs using the QEPrize 3D design app. The ten most impressive designs were picked as finalists, which can be seen below.
